I've never been very napkin friendly. By which I mean, at meals, rather than lay one on my lap, I'm substantially more likely to leave myself open for the peril of meal related stains. A little tomato sauce here, some balsamic vinegar there, it all comes out in the wash in the end, right?!

London Fashion Week A/W 2011 Catwalk Review: Prophetik (by Katie)

In a striking antidote to the dark, minimalist palettes of some A/W collections, Jeff Garner's 'Artist Wonderment' was the highlight of my first day at LFW. Inspired by the court of Louis XV, this is not fashion for the faint hearted, but it combines all my personal priorities; ethical production, theatricality and a modern twist on a historical theme.
